My name is Heather Simnor and I have been teaching since 1991. I started teaching at Glenbrook School part time in 2005 when we moved to the area, then fulltime since 2013.
I grew up in Naike, (North West Waikato – not too far from here). I went to a very small rural school, followed by Huntly College before heading to Waikato University.
I’m married to Keith. We have two children, Liam and Olivia. Both Liam and Olivia are heading to Waikato University in 2020.
I am passionate about education, and I am inspired by how students are enthused about learning. Being able to empower students to reach their potential is a privilege. I look forward to the learning journey I will share with the students of Haast in 2020.
